Does anyone have any DIY stuff that they've built for diving? I'm not
necessarily cheap, but I enjoy making things myself, and I'm looking
for ideas. I'm not talking about regs or tanks or computers; more like
bouys, carts, reels, etc.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

I built my "softweights", 26lbs of lead shot from a gun shop, ended up costing me less than $1/lb.

Just make sure you don't use a black one...obviously.

<DIV>Do you have to slide the little tab on the side before you can erase it?http://www.scubatoys.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif</DIV>

My BP/W from DSS. I had to put it together myself.. so it's kinda a "DIY". ;)

I had no one to help me.. so I did do it my(your)self. :P

that dive slate is looking quite nice right about now... when floopy disks are like 100 for a dollar.
<DIV>i like that idea... i have empty pocket room... so i can trown that in there play a nice little game of hangman on a safty stop. (until i can waterproof my gameboy, so then i can do a tetris safty stop)</DIV>

I wonder how the wi-fi on the DS would work at 60ft?
